Abstract

When speaking to HR leaders, one often hears them say, “My middle management is not stepping up, I need them to be ready for bigger roles, but how?” On the other hand, a closer look at the middle manager reveals a different story—they are already feeling stretched and overwhelmed. As responsibility is delegated downwards, middle leaders are taking on tasks that used to be done by people far more senior. At the same time, they are being asked to play an increasingly important role in shaping and developing the organization’s talent and strategic positioning.
